YourShot.ngm.com VISIONS EDITOR’S NOTE Swee Ong Wu Singapore Wu was on a snowmobile expedi- tion through the Arctic wilderness of Norway’s Svalbard archipelago when he took this photograph. “I was exploring an almost cavelike ice structure when I saw this opening,” he recalls. “It really looked as though I was in a completely new world.” ‘ We received more than 34,000 submissions for this assignment—our biggest ever.
